New wines at the Beautiful South10th September, 2013 by Rupert Millar
Founded by the Michelini brothers (pictured) in 2008, the winery is situated in the Uco Valley sub-region of Gualtallary.
With vines planted 1,350 metres above sea level on chalky soils, desert conditions prevail in the region which contributes to the wines’ structure and acidity.
Fiona Juby, marketing manager at Barwell & Jones, added: “It isn’t often that you get to work with new winemakers so full of passion, and who aren’t afraid to challenge the norm in order to produce the best quality wines possible.
“Defying the myths of winemaking, the brothers use innovative practices in both the winery and vineyard such as vinifying in concrete eggs for their ‘Eggo’ wine, and harvesting and co-fermenting Cabernet and Malbec for their ‘Field Blend’.”
